Up to 35,000 United Miles with Prosper

United Mileage Plus is offering a new promotion with Prosper. The merchant hasn't been affiliated with Mileage Plus before.

500 United miles are offered when checking your lending rate with Prosper. $1 for every dollar loan you take out.

The catch is that Prosper dos a credit check when quoting a rate – I could not find out if this is a 'hard' or 'soft' inquiry! I'd certainly not want to waste a credit inquiry for the rate checking only…

But I was wondering if you could take out a loan just for a couple of days and get 35,000 United miles for the closing? What kind of fees are associated with a Prosper loan? Anyone ever done this before?

This COULD be very lucrative.
